Default HB-YNN First Flight Video now online

Dear all,

It´s 18 min and HD so turn up the sound sit back and enjoy.
Hope that is a motivation boost for those pounding rivets.
And thanks to all listers for your input and prompt answers!

Michael

Sweet.

Michael, are those safety latches at the rear door edge? If so, can you post some details, pictures?

Thanks,

i'm only slightly biased ;-)

michi put together one of the best first flight videos ever.
highly recommended to watch. it should serve as a huge motivator to those still pounding rivets.
the video narrates the first flight very well and really captures the essence and joy of what building and then flying your own machine is about. :-)

thanks a lot for sharing and the hard work in cutting and editing!

many happy landings, bernie

Pierre,

not sure what you mean, I have the plane around save latch installed in the center and the alu pins guides in front and in the back both with sensors.

Regards
Mike

It appears as if you have two door handles...the original near the front and another one at the rear of the door.

Best,
